Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: kids and the Dead

My about to be 17 year old daughter spent about 10 hours at Bamboozle at Nassau last Saturday. She likes the Grateful Dead but not sure she has classified them. She is fascinated that one song can be 30 or 40 minutes long.

My 7 & 10 year olds like the GD but think I play them too much, and my 14 year old likes to make fun of me and convince me that the current Pop music she listens too is real music.

Help! 2 Boys 16/19 My kids like rap. It drive me nuts. Some of it makes me into a crazy man. Ten minutes is all I can take or I leave the room.
They like all sorts of music. rock,jazz,and classical.When they go to concerts they always put their money on rock.My 16 year old is a great first class drummer. (like his Dad) I have always tried to show them what musicianship is all about. Always regret not taking them to an outdoors GD show.But it was too late.

Your reaction to rap is totally understandable. I try to look at it from a generational point of view - my parents thought that the Stones were the Devil incarnate. And, I try to think of rap not as music, but street poetry. You are lucky in that they also show some wider interest in other types of music as well.
